Hot dogs and wild geese
In the gutter
Save me, Mickey
With a little help from my friends
A dozen key chains
You can call me Al
Of mosquitoes and men
The "F word"
America, land of the free
The Ham amendment
It's all relatives
Me and Bob Hope
I ran and I ran and I ran
I-raynians need not apply
Girls just wanna have funds
I feel the earth move under my feet
A nose by any other name
Judges paid off
If I were a rich man
Afterword : Kazem and Nazireh Jazayeri.
